The iRoofing app requires a subscription so you as a manufacturer or distributor could get listed as well as your products and technical data.

Construction Apps: iRoofing Final Review

After reviewing the iRoofing app some other features could also be part of the roofing app. For instance, the app must have a feedback or evaluation area where clients could be able to write reviews or endorse contractors from their own experience. In addition, the app is only limited to manufacturers, vendors, and roofing contractors that enroll into their system. One additional item that needs to be clarified is the precision of the satellite system used to measure the roof, and how colors could actually be represented to match real products. The bottom line, is a solid roofing app, that still need to be developed, but can offer you additional resources, quick and faster enough to convince your client to hire you.

This review is based on limited information provide by the app developer. For more information visit http://applosophy.com.
